Brian Rice

Brian Rice (hand percussion)

Brian is the latest addition to the WTD cast of characters, coming in to sub for Joe when Joe was touring with the Grisman band and blowing everybody’s minds so thoroughly he’s become a mainstay, even doubling up with Joe in Mickey-and-Billy style for the 2001 Freight & Salvage show. When not performing with WTD, Brian teaches jazz and world drumming to kids and adults in Oakland and performs in contexts as varied as with Mike Marshall’s Choro Famoso ensemble and the touring company of The Lion King.
